I visited a local upholstery shop to see about having new seat foam installed on my 2003 TJ and the owner told me that I could buy a new seat from Bestop cheaper than he could replace the foam on my seats (driver and passenger). He said that the foam is not removable but bonded to the seat bottom frame and is a nightmare to work on. He really thought Bestop had a better replacement seat. I checked them out and the price of the seat isn't bad, but they seem to required a new frame part that is as expensive as the seat.

1). Has any tried to replace the seat foam?

2). Has any purchased the Bestop seat? How are they? Are they an exact replica for the OEM? Did you have to buy the seat frame part too?

Thanks

Bob

i’ve had my Bestop seats for quite a while now and I like them. The seats do not need a new frame they just need an adapter bracket and yes they’re pricy. There are a lot of seats out there make sure you look beyond Bestop.

Do the Bestop seat have the latch at the top near the headrest to fold the seat forward like the OEM ones?

There was a thread a number of years ago where someone cut out all the broken and separated foam and glued new material in its place, then trimmed it back to the stock contours. Looked really good and I believe it held up pretty good. Ill see if I can find it...
